Don't know if he was mentioned yet but Joseph Bologne is known as the "Black Mozart" and overall as a historical figure, he is pretty unbelievable. I'm shocked how Hollywood haven't made a blockbuster about him yet.

Here he is. He seems to be in the transition phase from baroque to classical (in the strict sense). Apparently Mozart wasn't a fan.


Violin Concerto in G

Romanians also produced an incredible amount of musicals geniuses. Their greatest composer is George Enescu.

Pablo Casals(and one of the greatest cellists of all time) described him as "the greatest musical phenomenon since Mozart".

Vincent d'Indy claimed that if Beethoven's works were destroyed, they could be all reconstructed from memory by George Enescu. Alfred Cortot, one of the greatest pianists of all time, once said that Enescu, though primarily a violinist, had better piano technique than his own.
